5W-30 seems too thin of an oil for a non-supercharged engine. Last I knew, the N/A'* used 10w-30.

No sir. That might be an add on kit accessory of some sort. And yes, they are available for the 3800'*, but I have never seen one installed or seen an actual parts listing for one in the GM books or field service manuals.
